Think on this thought first....If you only had two (2) weeks and two (2) days to live what changes would you make...and my thoughts have been on my mother because 2 years ago that is all I would have had left to see her...so bear with me on this article. My only resource that I depend on is the Inspired Written Word of Yahweh (God). Before I begin to write, I pray and ask for me words to be guided. I am not a pastor nor do I hold a clergy position but I have been appointed a gift for my journey/mission.
Let journey back in time between 701 and 681 B.C. and visit Jerusalem to meet the Prophet Isaiah. The Prophecy of Isaiah is one of the world's greatest masterpieces. Isaiah will tell us that his name means "Salvation of Jehovah"
Isaiah 53:1.........Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed?
verse 3.......He is depised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and accquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
verse 4....Surely he hath brown our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
verse 5...He was wounded for our transgression, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
verse 5...All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the inquity of us all.
Isaiah was the greatest of the Writing Prophets and he writes about God's judgment and salvation. Isaiah reminds the people to be on Alert for future Assyrian threats in the northern kingdom and danger in the south. During my review of biblical lessons that referenced "Isaiah" I could even see where it could be applied to me today for more detail study and I do recommend reading the entire book of Isaiah for February through March.
We are entering the "Lent..Passover..Easter" season. During Lent our attention should be on worshipping the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world. Lent is a time of special weekday opportunities to worship the Lamb that was slain for us.
Man's wickedness and sin did increase to large proportions. Mankind was lose according to The Divine Inspired Word of God. So Mankind was l-o-s-t.
Something had to be done...God sent Himself, a thrid part of the Trinity (Father, Son, Holy Spirit). HE stepped out of ETERNITY to be born of a human virgin female. HE stepped off the highest throne created. He did pay the price for murderers, rapists, theives, and every imaginable sin you can possibly think of.
It is manking who cheated on God. We have placed eveything from money to drugs and others things above Him.
I may say I forgive you, but is it really in the back of my mind forever? So you see, I (maybe you) are very weak and fragile creatures.
As I(We) try to faithfully follow Jesus/Yeshua(Hebrew name for Jesus which means Salvation) from the upper room to the cross of Calvary, we are comforted by the fact that in suffering Jesus was bearing our griefs and and carrying our sorrows. HE died and has overcome for us all the enemies...evil one attacks of our soul's salvation. Sin.The Evil One..The Devil.. may accuse us, but the Anointed, our Advocate before the Father, is our Shield against all the foes of our soul. Jesus is indeed my Shield to protect and provide for me in perfect security in the salvation He has won for me and all who choose HIM.
And back to my mother...something that I thought about at her death bed there were two of us on each side.......my sister and me........I thank Jesus for this thought..Amen
Biblical truths: God's Protection..Psalm 84:11...For the Lord is a sun and shield; He bestows favor and honor. Lesson.....Among the things God provides for the protection of HIS children is the ministry of HIS holy angels. Prayer...Father, God of Issac, Abraham and Jacob thank you for this privilege to share, thank you for your holy angels that are encamped around us, keep and protect us from the evil one(s), open our eyes to see the crafts and assaults of the evil one..Teach us how to love ALL Mankind.
